A $70,000 Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 contract has been awarded by the US Navy to Bodkin Design & Engineering LLC of Newton, Mass. The company will develop a hyperspectral imaging system to be integrated into periscopes and photonic masts to perform contact recognition and identification in marine environments. The device will capture both spectral and spatial information in one video frame, eliminating motion artifacts.
- hyperspectral imaging
- Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
- Pertaining to or as a function of wavelength. Spectral quantities are evaluated at a single wavelength.
